Segment One: Calling for peace in Gaza (James Michael Crusoe, Arlington Road Church of Christ, Hopewell Virginia)

Inspired by the "message of reconciliation" in Second Corinthians 5:18-20, 13 leaders from Church of Christ congregations in seven states and one South African province recently signed a letter calling for an immediate ceasefire in the Gaza-Israel conflict. Their spokesperson, James Michael Crusoe, explains why.

Segment Two: A foreign mission field in Florida (Maikon and Tatiane Borba, Southeast Florida Church of Christ, Pompano Beach, Florida)

Brazilians Maikon and Tatiane Borba came to the United States to train for mission work back in their home country. But when they found as many as half a million Brazilians living in South Florida, they sensed God calling them to a "visa-free foreign mission field." They tell their story.
